  1. I love Yosemite! Its close and beautiful! Our weather in CA lets us enjoy outdoors longer than other parts of the country. Hiking is great in Yosemite, but the various waterfalls are some of the most beautiful in the world.

  2. As an old geezer, I have been to several national parks in my lifetime. They all offer something different and they are all great. I think I’d have to put the Grand Canyon at the top of my list. It is awesome on several levels, a geological history of the planet, continuously occupied from ancient Anasazi to present, varied flora and fauna in several ecological zones, the beauty and the grandeur, that old river that is a water source for millions of people. I could go on and on. Anyone can access this natural wonder in multiple ways–tourist, hiker, photographer–wheelchair bound or not.

  3. Yosemite! With all the bike trails, you can take in the sights while getting some exercise. Some of my favorite memories are rafting in the Merced River, hiking the Mist Trail, and picnicking at Mirror Lake. Ending the night making s’mores around our campfire at Upper Pines can’t be beat!

  4. Such great answers… I guess you all get a prize! Thanks for sharing your national park memories. We’re excited to celebrate their history and majesty at the Fair this year. Hope to see you all there, too. Contest is closed, but would still love to hear more memories!

  5. Yosemite is my favorite. Getting more crowded in the valley every year, but still has lots of great quiet areas especially on the eastern side.
